“Musical teaching and learning is not neat or linear. The strands of musical learning, presented within the lesson plans and the on-screen resources, are part of the learning spiral. Over time, children can both develop new musical skills and concepts, and re-visit established musical skills and concepts as they shift along the spiral learning curve. Repeating a musical skill doesn’t necessarily mean their progress is slowing down or their development is moving backwards. It's just shifting within the spiral. Mastery means both a deeper understanding of musical skills and concepts and learning something new.”

Charanga scheme 

We measure the impact of music in many different ways.

  • Through simple questions and answers

  • Listening and responding to the music verbally and through movement

  • Internalising the pulse, rhythm and pitch of a piece of music using movement

  • Developing a musical vocabulary and using the terminology within the correct context

  • Call and response activities

  • The impact is also measured through key questions, self-assessment opportunities and summative assessments.
